Samsung Galaxy Note 9: Full cost breakdown for USA carriers

As part of the exclusivity deal, you'll be able to download a special Galaxy skin if you play the game on a Galaxy Note 9 or a Galaxy Tab 4.

Samsung Electronics Co Ltd launched the Galaxy Note 9 "phablet" in NY on Thursday, promising better battery life and quick cooling to attract gamers and revive flagging sales. Those include the S Pen, which is one of the things that makes a Note a Note.

This latest S Pen has been outfitted with Bluetooth functionality that allows it to pair with the phone and act as a remote control.

Samsung is live in New York City, where it has announced the much-anticipated Galaxy Note 9 smartphone with a revamped S Pen.

The Galaxy Note 9 runs Android 8.1 Oreo at launch. Samsung has also upgraded the processor inside the Galaxy Note 9, packing an octa-core Snapdragon 845 processor into its new flagship, and the battery has gotten a bump to 4000mAh.

So you could use it to take long-range group selfies, start and stop music that's playing on your phone and advance through slides while your colleagues gaze in awe at the cool transitions you've chosen for your presentation.

Galaxy Note 9. Now with a reasonable battery. There's also an 8-megapixel (with f1.7aperture) selfie snapper on the front of the phone.

Samsung has nabbed the exclusive Android release of popular survival game Fortnite as part of the launch for its Note 9 phablet, which the company is marketing as a premium phone for gamers. The 128GB model also comes equipped with 6GB of RAM, while the 512GB model gets a bump to 8GB of RAM.

Samsung's phone-based computing solution now works over a simple USB-C-to-HDMI adaptor, which dramatically boosts the value proposition. No surprises with the price, but you can get up to £300 off if you trade in an old Galaxy smartphone.

United States pre-orders are available here from Samsung.

Editor's Note: This article discusses one or more securities that do not trade on a major USA exchange. This feature lets users connect their device to a computer display using a separate accessory, essentially turning the smartphone into a full-featured desktop with apps. The camera will also offer a warning if someone blinked in a shot, or if the image is blurry.

But the Note fan base may be convinced to upgrade if they're in the market for a bigger screen, better battery life and new camera features. In our short usage, the "scene" icon is barely noticeable, and the recognition doesn't feel as quick as Huawei's P20.

Samsung also debuted a new product product category for its line, the Galaxy Home speaker.
